Natural hair journey so far....

Hello Everyone,

I am here again o. Well feeling motivated.
Thank you all for the loving comments including the private emails  greatly appreciated. Muahh. 
After watching this Youtube(I will include the video below). I felt motivated to actually update.
I do believe am in the process of diagnosing my problems yes o or maybe issues.
I am far too lazy, always giving excuses and way too much of a thinker(thinker in a sense that I don't get up and do but sit and over analyse). Watching the video did not only enlighten me but has helped me to come back to reality(I need to constantly remind myself to live in the now and not future).

At some point, I got to the stage where I felt like I no longer want to blog and that I had nothing to offer anymore.I felt that I started this blog because I was hurting at the time and blogsville was my family. Having a blog should be  more of a purpose isn't it?

We will delve deep some other time.

Journey on my natural hair so far.
Next month I will be one year Yippee!!!

Please indulge in the pics below.
My hair can finally do small  puffs.Yay! April/May measurements.

March/April pics. All twists outs.
Bantu knots first attempt. Not bad.

                                    
Results! And no am not pouting lol only mocking around.

Random. If you look closely I was defo pouting (posh though) lol. x


That is all. You are free to ask me any questions regarding my hair regime.
I hardly use products on my hair and I love it that way. 

                            As promised link to the video I watched.(Btw one of my hair icons).

Paying a TRIBUTE!

Hello Everyone,

How are we?
I trust we are all well and buzzing.
Its been forever and a day. lol.
I can't apologise enough but I know by now alot of you might have  given up on me so...

I am here to pay a tribute to someone that means alot to my Mum.
My Mum is currently mourning the loss of a special person that she wished it was not too soon.
She lost her dearest Dad on the early hours of  May the 5th.
I will not forget the piercing sound I heard during my morning devotion. I knew immediately it had something to do with her Dad.

I recall going to see her after I came back from church on Sunday and she looked sad.
I asked her why she was sad,  she told me about her worries.
You see, her dad had been sick for a while infact a long while but this time it looked more serious than ever before.
She insisted over and over again that she didn't  want him to die now to which I responded, he is 87 would have been 88 in July, he has achieved and done well for himself. She insisted she wanted him to live to become  a centenarian that her spirit didn't want him to die yet. I smiled and said, she shouldn't worry but be proud of him. Its funny how she was feeling weird and the very next day she got the call that he had passed away.

She was hurt and still is.
Though I did not have a personal relationship with him, Mum did and she will miss him dearly.
My memory of him was of a calm person, Mum shares a  striking resemblance with her Dad that does make Mum happy. :)
Regardless whether I had a relationship with him or not am paying this tribute to him because he was amongst the key people that shaped my Mum's destiny and contributed to who she is today.

She is ever so thankful for the good education Dad gave her which helped her alot.
He was also a prominent figure to an extent and did his bit maybe if he had more chance he would have done even more.
So to Grandad, I hope your legacy carries on through your children, children and children.
You did your part and I can only pray that you meet with God.
Stay blessed and Rest In Peace.
I am grateful to come through a lineage of a an excellent worker like you.

Love
x

Peek a "BOO"

Hello Sweet people,

Its been a while.
I trust you all are well.

I know I was suppose to update ages ago but I couldn't log in when I tried but its all sorted out now.

I have been  busy with life, the thinking part, the reflecting and the not so good side of it at the same time I have been having fun. I guess it balances out in a way.

I got a new DLSR Nikon 3100. Whoop Whoop.

I just wanted to say hello really and update on my TWA. Its growing o. :)
Please check out the pics below. x


                  I think twist out is perfect for any occasion. I rocked "twist out" on my birthday.
              
   I have not done "twist out" in ages instead I put my hair in plaits and take it out.



When it comes to accessorising with natural hair, I find lipsticks helps to create a dynamic effect.
 I am a lipstick person and fortunately/unfortunately my voluminous lips loves it. With the help of my friend below btw, she is one of my bestest boo, she tells me off when I apply little. I tend to pile apply  it on till I feel great about it.



                                                   Myself n bestie...

Enjoy the rest of the week.
Congrats on Ibahde intro.. Whoop whoop. How I have missed her.
Be Blessed and Stay Blessed.
God is good, I can't wait to share my testimony by faith. x

HAPPY 2014!!! WHOOP

Hello Everyone,

HAPPY NEW YEAR. Whoop whoop.

I trust we had an awesome Christmas. YAY.
Thank God it went well.

I myself wasn't feeling well. Your dearest was sick with fever and cold. The virus during the winter month kia.
I only just got better with mild coughs. I am grateful it was not worse than this but it was bad in that I could not do things myself. My sister who  very rarely cooks, cooked and  fed me my breakfast to show I unwell I was.

I am better and am thankful for the grace to do things myself. My prayer is that healing mercies will find  many of us that desire it.

I hope this year will be BIGGER, BETTER AND ofcourse we ACCOMPLISH MORE.
Personally, I am motivated to accomplish plenty things this year including travelling, meeting new people, going to new places, staying busy,  networking etc.

There is a world bigger than my four corner walls and I want to EXPLORE IT.
I hope to be more PROACTIVE, push myself without being held back by ANYTHING.

I hope we all inspired to keep going and not look back.

Forget regrets, learn from the mistakes and believe you will even accomplish more than you had anticipated.
By the end of 2014 I just want to roll on the floor with thanksgiving, happiness and joy.
I want to feel content and the  fire to keep going.

My sisters and brothers, we will make it in 2014.
Lets not stop encouraging each other but elevate each other.

By the way, Happy New Year to Ibahde, NiajaMum in London, Unveiling Gold and many more beautiful bloggers that have either left or simply have not updated in a longgg while.
You are missed. Stay blessed.

Lots love from yours and only.

**Feeling Good**

Hello People,

I am so blog inspired and motivated.

I will be talking motivational today. Oh yeah. *winks*
Please you are welcome to share with your friends.

Feeling good: what is this all about and why  is it important?
Well honey, only you can answer the question correctly but pls hear what I have to say.

The idea of feeling good for me basically means choosing to stay positive, being positive and allowing my inner beauty i.e. the burst of energy that  resides inside to  radiate outside  triumphing over any negativity around me. In a nutshell, being confident and loving it.

I am totally  a "feel good" kind of person in that I don't care at all for other people's opinion emphasis placed on the bad ones. I am a happy go lucky child and one thing am grateful for is that I can be oblivious to certain things. I don't know why but sometimes my mind just does not acknowledge the meanest, saddest or insulting things some people chose to say or do. I sometimes notice much later that the person just said something rude but in that point in time I don't hear or see it.  I am glad am that way in fact I pray to continue to stay that way because I sure do not want anyone from anywhere to feel they can open their mouth and rain in my parade. Constructive criticism yes am open to and other good remarks but constant negativity and all sorts No, I am not open to it.

Why? what point is it that I abhor or indulge in such talks especially when the rationale is absolutely dumb. For instance, I am not a shy person noo and am quite happy to dance my socks away on the dance floor although to some people it looks odd or not posh or whatever etc. The truth is you can't cringe for me because at that point in time am having the ultimate fun ever!!!.
I recall  a situation at a wedding on the dance floor, doing my famous moves lol, my friend tried to tell me to tone it down, hahaha bless her she was embarrassed for me. I turned to her and just completely carried on dancing.

Also with my natural hair, I had alot of I can't believe you cut your hair, people that don't talk to me on a normal day sat me down etc  oo this ooo that. I laughed it off, I didn't care and  I rocked it with confidence. In fact one of my besties always dizzes naturals lol, that we look like village girls etc. I told her to wait till she sees me.  I look funky o, village has nothing on me. She was wowed plus I rocked it with so much love.

The  point of the illustration goes to show that I can't be tamed and I don't want to be tamed. There will come a time in my life maybe I will feel somehow but until then allow me o.

I also think part of feeling good is being happy, like appreciating life, appreciating you  and be full of it. In my old workplace, they loved my enthusiasm to constantly want to do things. It is part of feel good. I like using my initiative to help out without expecting back although it is only courtesy to be grateful. I think its a prayer point worth asking God, "help me to do things and be kind without thinking or expecting anything back".

In a nutshell, I am a feel good person it shows in all part of me. I am always upbeat, optimistic and whether you know me personally or you don't you will always feel it somehow. I don't like to hold myself back mentally because I have only one life to live besides  once I get past a certain age I can't wish it  back.

2014 by his grace will be one of the best UPBEAT year. I have alot of desires to accomplish but importantly I want to be inspired and inspire others.We will inspire each other.

Live, Love and ROCK.

Jesus best boo. Nobody shouldn't tell me Jesus didn't have fun say what? Jesus traveled saw and met different people so I mean CAMon.. lol.

P.S. Fun does not mean self damage or doing things that are  harmful to both yourself and others. xxx
